Dadizeele New British Cemetery
Dadizeele New British Cemetery is located 16 km east of Ypres, in the village of Dadizele.
The village of Dadizeele (now Dadizele) was in German hands for much of the First World War until reached by the 36th (Ulster) Division, and taken by the 9th (Scottish) Division, on 29 September 1918. Severe fighting followed on 1 October, at Hill 41, a little south of the village. Dadizeele New British Cemetery is in fact an extension of the communal cemetery. It was made after the Armistice when graves were brought in from other burial grounds and from the battlefields of 1918, although there are a few 1914 graves. The graves are mainly those of the 36th, 9th and 35th Divisions.
The Cemetery contains the grave of James Richard Ormerod (Grave Ref. I. E. 28,), who was killed in October 1918 whilst serving with the 17th Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers - part of the 35th Division.
